Good day all, 

 

I am wondering if anyone knows of a Teams app that will interface with Excel and (only hold data in Excel). In my little dream I was hoping to have team members populate an excel database via an app that would be more like a form. My hope would that it would be more of an interactive process where I could add hints, and flag errors or empty required cells all without having the team open the actual excel database. 

 

Thoughts? Options? Suggestions?

 

Thanks for your input!

It might be possible to build a powerapp and add that as a tab?

@adam deltinger  thanks for the quick reply. I may go that route but I am concerned about budget approvals etc for that to happen. Don't think I currently have access. 

 

Still, I may develop something on a free trial and propose it as a solution. 

 

Thanks!
